Murder, you say? On the Orient Express? Fear not, Belgian detective extraordinaire Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) is on the train and on the case in a new adaptation of the Agatha Christie tale on “Masterpiece Mystery!” (KCET, 9 p.m.)


But if your case proves too tough for a Belgian, enlist a Dane — a Great Dane, that is. The new series “Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated” follows the further misadventures of the snack-happy cartoon canine and his plucky pals. (Cartoon Network, 7 p.m.)


“Coyote Ugly's” Piper Perabo — who is not a coyote, and certainly not ugly — plays a CIA trainee with an ear for languages who gets a premature promotion to full-fledged field agent in the new espionage drama “Covert Affairs.” (USA, 10 p.m.)


Who's a good sport? That will be answered at the “2010 ESPYs,” the 18th edition of the ceremony celebrating sports moments and the athletes who make them happen. “SNL's” Seth Meyers (below) hosts. (ESPN, 6 p.m.)


“Mary Knows Best”… which shouldn't be too surprising, since this particular Mary is Mary Occhino, renowned psychic, as well as author, radio host, mother of three and star of this new supernaturally tinged reality series. (Syfy, 9 p.m.)


Evil geniuses use their genius for evil. But there's a family of good geniuses out to stop them in the TV movie “The Jensen Project.” Kellie Martin, Patricia Richardson and LeVar Burton (above) star. (NBC, 8 p.m.)


“The Office's” Ricky Gervais is the founding father of falsehoods in the thought-provoking 2009 comedy “The Invention of Lying.” Would he lie to you? Yes, yes, he would. Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe and Tina Fey costar. (HBO, 8 p.m.)


“Law & Order's” Angie Harmon and “NCIS's” Sasha Alexander are “Rizzoli & Isles,” Boston-based partners in crime fighting who are also best buddies in this new series based on the novels by Tess Gerritsen. (TNT, 10 p.m. Mon.)


Egyptologist extraordinaire Dr. Zahi Hawass is in the business of “Chasing Mummies” – and business is a-boomin' – in this new archaeologically-themed docu-series. Now that's what we call a pyramid scheme. (History, 10 p.m. Wed.)


The new documentary “Twin Town” visits a village in India that boasts over 250 sets of twins – which is, statistically speaking, nearly six times the global average. Genetics … or something in the water? (National Geographic, 6 and 9 p.m. Tue.)
